    It's not that we don't want to tell you, we just don't know of any places because we've never had the need to have anyone anodize something.

    You can't anodize white because the dying process is semi-transparent. If you dyed something white, the grey aluminum color would show through, making a grey color.

    The lightest color is probably a light grey.

    Why don't you talk to your science teacher and see if he's interested in experimenting with a kit. We sell quite a few kits to science teachers in High School for class demonstrations etc.

    No, just steel (not stainless)

    We have a chromate for aluminum that gives a yellow/brown color. See http://www.caswellplating.com/aids/metal.htm

    Your other option is anodizing.
